popcorn fan who’s seen a few movies
🍿 🎥 🎞
Scream (2022) just freaking slays. It’s surprising gruesome, extremely self aware, and a lot of fun overall. It really is a full circle rollercoaster seeing the original characters on screen again alongside the new cast. If you’ve seen Scream 1-4, you know they aren’t horror films, they’re a slasher murder mystery where all hell breaks loose in the third act. If you haven’t seen the other movies, this is still a great and complete story, but you will enjoy…
I can’t stop thinking about Licorice Pizza. Paul Thomas Anderson creates a story here that is easily one of the most re-watchable films of the year. It’s charming, funny, heartfelt, and adventurous. It blows my mind that this is the first acting gig for both of the main stars here, Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman, they’re fantastic on screen together. Haim especially just glows, and will be in the talks during award season. From start to finish, I really enjoyed my time with Licorice Pizza, and I can’t wait to see it again!
The Power of the Dog is the kind of movie that spends most of its time setting the stage for everything to come together at the end, and then have you theorizing what it all means afterwards. The performances here are nothing short of fantastic. As you’re watching, you become so enamored by the world building that you’re along for the ride no matter what, they really nail a western here without going overboard. Hoping this will get the recognition it deserves come award season, but ultimately at the end of the day, it’s a great western adventure with memorable characters and storytelling.
Sure I’ve read some of the books and have seen all of the movies, but I’m not a die-hard fan… However, with that being said, this was still something extremely special. This 20th anniversary reunion was very well done and so heartfelt. Loaded with so many precious memories from the cast and crew, I loved it. If you grew up with this series, and it had any impact on your childhood, this is a must-see.
“Clark Griswald was a hero of mine.”
…except Clark Griswald was a fictional character created for comedic purposes, who didn’t sue his own neighbors like a psychopath. This man is actually insane. This is new wave horror and it’s legitimately terrifying that this is a true story.
Need to give credit to one of the neighbors for the best quote of the whole documentary:
“How do you put a fart back in once it’s come out?”
“With great power, comes great responsibility.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home is a dream come true. I laughed hard, I cheered, and I shed some tears in the process. I’m still in shock and can’t believe they were so ambitious and actually pulled this off, because it’s not just fan service, it a very well made movie too! Without going into details, it’s the complete package and I loved everything about it. Hands down, this is the best Spider-Man movie, and it…
